To top it all off, depending on the location, many agricultural customers pay by their land area, not by the gallon, so they have no incentive to conserve at all and grow water wasting crops (e.g. rice in the dessert, 1.1 gallons to grow one almond ) and livestock (1,800 gallons for one pound of beef).

When I was a young lad I was at a supermarket late one night. An older fellow approached me holding a can of Planters peanuts. He asked me if I knew the difference between "beer nuts" and "deer nuts." I told him that I did not know, to which he replied: "Beer nuts are one-fifty but deer nuts are under a buck." I laughed nervously and slowly backed away from him. Only later, once I was back home safe and sound, did it occur to me that the man bore an uncanny resemblance to Kurt Vonnegut.
